2 weeks ago my lovely husband started painting our kitchen while I was out shopping. He told me that he was going to surprise me on which green he chose because we couldn't decide on one. I got home and I initially loved the color. However, at night it was so lime green it almost glowed! I felt like I was inside a margarita glass. Not a bad thought, but you don't want that on your walls! Here is the first test color - margarita green :)
We both hated the bright green so the next day we got together and picked up another color. The man at the hardware store promised us that this next color would be the perfect tone for a kitchen and it was "the most popular color choice." Yuck! I hated it the second it went on, but we decided to paint the whole kitchen just to be sure. It reminded me of a creamy mint or sea foam green. It was just awful! But I felt so bad for Aaron since he had painted so much already. We decided to keep it on for a week - PTL we had no guests - and change it the next weekend.
This last Sunday we started at it again. Aaron went back to the store and picked out a new green. And this time it worked! It's the perfect green shade. It's a little deeper than it shows up on pictures. But I really love it! It flows really good with the living room too. Our house is so open, which is nice, but then you have to make sure each room has similar colors. So it makes it interesting! And yes, we still have the blue tape on the walls. We have to do some touch ups so we are keeping it on until we are completely done!
I do believe we are done with painting for a while. This kitchen kicked our butts trying to get it perfect so we are taking a break! And speaking of a break, Aaron and I are heading to Florida next Wednesday for a family vacation!! I could not be more thrilled. We have so much planned already and I am ex-cited! My dad booked us a deep sea fishing trip so I'm pumped about that. I've never been fishing in the ocean so it should be a fun experience. I can't wait to get a cute Columbia fishing shirt and dress the part :) Of course I turn our fishing trip into something about clothes....
